A Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) is capable of measuring the acoustic field at every point along an optical fibre. Applications of this technology are becoming increasingly mature, with many companies making commercial decisions based on DAS data. In the geophysical field DAS is being used routinely to acquire VSP measurements either using wireline deployed or permanently installed fibre optic cables and active sources. The results in this paper show some comparisons with data from conventional sensors and highlight the benefits of these types of measurements.
